SLSA-Winter-2018-Newsletter

Message from the Board President

Season’s Greetings!

We had a very successful owner meeting on November 4th. There were many owners with a lot of great questions and comments. As a Board, we appreciate everyone that took the time to join the Board and the management staff for the Annual Meeting.

It is hard to believe that we are nearing Christmas. As we get older, the time seems to go so much faster. I am sure New Year’s 2018 was just yesterday!

We are looking forward to the New Year and the time we spend at Schooner. I like to call it my “rejuvenating time.” If I lived at the beach, I would never get anything done. Between sitting watching the whales that are around all year and the different patterns of the waves, I can sit for hours and do nothing. I hope that as owners you have the same positive experiences at Schooner.

Have you ever thought of running for the Board? A few of our Board members have been serving for many years and are considering retirement. So, if you have thought about it, please contact me or Mike Lewis, Resort Manager.
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Respectfully,

Carol Williams

What’s New at Schooner Landing?

Dear Members,

It was a pleasure meeting those of you who attended the Annual Meeting.

If you wish to be in the yearly Lottery for 2020 reservations, please return the Reservation Request Form by the date listed. Our goal is to have all of the reservations confirmed and confirmations mailed out in about two weeks’ time of the Lottery draw.

I continue to enjoy meeting the owners during their stay at Schooner and at the weekly “Grill the Skipper” meetings. Please stop by my office during your stay, as I will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have regarding the resort and reservations.

I wish everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday Season and hope to see you real soon on your next vacation at Schooner Landing!

Thank you!

Mike Lewis, Resort Manager

Resort Activities
Debbie from the Front Desk Staff has taken on the holiday decorating duties and has done a fantastic job starting with Halloween and now the Christmas Decorations. Stop by if you are in town over the holidays to take a look and say “hello.”

Friendly Reminders
Please be aware that the main entrance to the Club House is around the pool building to your left as you approach the building. We have marked the path with arrows and lights. You can also enter from the back deck where the BBQ’s are located. The hours of the Club House are 7:30 am to 10:30 pm daily.

Things to do
The swimming pool is open and ready to be enjoyed. We have recently repainted the deck surface and did some cosmetic work in the locker rooms.

A friendly reminder that we do have some good old-fashion board games and puzzles to borrow at the Club House. It can be great family fun on a winter evening in front of the cozy fireplace in your suite or in the Club House.

Local Events
The Central Coast Chorale will be presenting its “Annual Wishes & Candles” holiday concerts in December.

The 50-voice choir, under the direction of Mary Lee Scoville, will be kicking off the holiday season with a selection of Christmas music on Saturday, Dec. 8th at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. The concert will be repeated on Dec. 15th at the Yachats Commons, and then on Dec. 16th, the chorale will perform a special version of the concert at the Newport Performing Arts Center, adding a small orchestra as accompaniment. All three concerts begin at 2 pm and have a suggested donation of $10 for admission.

For more information see their website at: centralcoastchorale.com

Owners Beware
Please be aware of Resale Scams!
Many of the companies that contact Timeshare owners offering to take their Timeshare “off of their hands” normally do not follow through with the paperwork and the original owner has paid for a service that does not get done, leaving the owner with the same responsibility to their resort they had before they paid these companies.
